You've got to hand it to Soho pub The Sun & 13 Cantons, they really know how to pick their pop-ups. Following hard on the heels of Sambal Shiok and Adam Rawson's residency, the next folk in charge will be CLAW.
The sustainable seafood streetfood vendors will stay in situ over the winter in an extended residency which will allow them to serve an expanded menu. In addition to their signature
Another New York restaurant is making the trip to London as New York's Extra Fancy is popping up in the Blues Kitchen in Shoreditch for three nights only. They're a very popular Brooklyn seafood and crab shack and they'll be bringing their best dishes over for a surf vs turf mash-up menu against Blue's Kitchen's Texas offering.
So from Extra Fancy, there
If you like your seafood a bit more interesting than your bog standard cod and chips, then you may have come across the Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack, who’ve been enjoying a rather popular five years at their Fitzrovia home. Now they’ll be bringing their ‘Squid Toast’ with ink aioli and ember-cooked mussels to a new, second branch in Soho.
You should only eat oysters in the months with an ‘R’ in them, as the saying
If you've been to any of London Shell's pop-ups, you'll know that it's good news that this enthusiastic bunch of foodies have signed a deal to open a permanent restaurant in London. However, it's not bricks and mortar - more wood and steel. They'll be launching a floating restaurant on the Regent’s Canal at Paddington with dinner either moored up or on the move.
As you might expect from such a watery location, the menu focuses on seasonal seafood.
Feast your eyes - and your stomachs! This stonking looking shellfish platter is a new summer special hitting Smith & Wollensky on Friday. The treat for two includes lobster, crabmeat, jumbo shrimp, oysters and Amandes clams with a classic cocktail sauce, cognac mustard sauce, ginger sauce and sherry mignonette. And it comes with a bottle of Provencal rose from Château de l’Aumérade. Seems a good enough reason to slope off early this Friday, or have a lovely long
Seafood with a huge dash of sex appeal, Galley brings va va voom to N1
The revitalisation of Islington's dining scene continues apace with news of another interesting restaurant opening on Upper Street. Galley restaurant and bar takes over the space occupied by United Ramen and is a venture by brother and sister team Oriona Robb and Marcel Grzyb.
Marcel's been Head Chef at Soho’s Randall & Aubin for a decade and, as you might expect given his background, he's put together a menu with a strong focus on seafood.
We've been hearing nice things about popular street food CLAW, so hearing that it's coming indoors for the winter with a residency in the City is good news. They'll be starting a one month weekend brunch residency at Fish Market (just opposite Liverpool St Station) serving up all that lovely seafood they've built their reputation on. Dishes you can expect include Crab Burger with handpicked Devonshire crab, samphire and claw sauce and a Lobster BLT made with
This rather fine looking shellfish dish is the crab burger from Claw. And if just gazing at that photo makes you fancy it half as much as we do right now, you'll be wanting to know that the streetfood folk behind it have just taken residency at The Three Compasses in Dalston.
From this week until the end of January they'll be serving up a mainly crab-based menu with all their crab coming from Start Bay in Devon.
There'll be five burgers on offer
This was an instant London hit from the moment it held its star-studded party, but the food at Sexy Fish is worthy of its own space in the spotlight
Just opened, very much on the QT in Mayfair is House of Crab, a short-term pop-up by James Chase of Chase distillery and Dominic Jacobs - the folk behind The Running Horse pub in Mayfair. This new seafood spot, where Chalet (aka Princess Diana's favourite restaurant) used to be, will be here until the end of January, after which the building it's in faces demolition.
As the name suggests, the menu focuses on crab, Salcombe crab to be specific which is where
Updated 5/9/15 with extended opening details
Kensington Place has recently had a bit of a refurb and now they're adding something new - a pop up chippy. The food, as befits its location, is certainly more upmarket than most fish and chip shops.
For instance, on the menu will be:
